   The menuconfig syntax is very simple and hard to abuse. There is no 
testing of the contents except for <int> and <hex> which have an 
optional <range lo hi>.
.  config <param name>
.  bool is y/n (not our 1/0.. too bad)
.  choice/endchoice is <1 of n> bool selections
.  menu/endmenu is a simple wrapper around the above cmds.
.  'bool' and 'string' take optional prompt strings.

   I found it took more time to design the layout than 'write' the code.

   I will work on the scripts and leave the integration for much later.
